The Beezley Falls in Baxenghyll Gorge

Baxenghyll Gorge is a dramatic, steep-sided, rocky gorge carved by the lower reach of the River Doe through the landscape of the West Riding of Yorkshire, north-east of Ingleton. A short gorge as it is, it is known for its spectacular waterfalls.

The Ingleton Waterfall Walk runs through the Baxenghyll Gorge to see its cascades.

Waterfalls in the gorge

  • Beezley Falls are reached approximately two miles from the source at God's Bridge. These falls consist of a series of cascades, including the 'triple spout'.
  • Rival Falls have a plunge pool known as the Black Hole. The steepest drops are between 9 feet and 12 feet approximately.
  • Snow Falls are in the lower gorge about half a mile downstream and have similar drops.[1]
